Problem with searchguard roles mapping with LDAP.

When asking questions, please provide the following information:

  • Search Guard and Elasticsearch version 6.0.0

  • Installed and used enterprise modules, if any No

  • JVM version and operating system version

  • Search Guard configuration files

  • Elasticsearch log messages on debug level

  • Other installed Elasticsearch or Kibana plugins, if any


I have configured searchguard with LDAP. And user can now login successfully.

Also I have created one role in searchguard using GUI and in role mapping screen I have mapped that role to LDAP user. But LDAP user has no acces to any tab or screen.

All tab displayed are blank. Means there is problem in LDAP user mapping with Searchguard roles.

Please provide solution on that. Why searchguard roles not affecting with LDAP users.
